The marriage of Miss Alma Botsford Rorick, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Robert Rorick, to Howell Ormsbee Wilson, was solemnized yesterday afternoon at 4:30 o’clock at the home of the bride’s parents in Crescent avenue. The Rev. Robert J. MacAlpine of Central Presbyterian church performed the ceremony, which took place in front of the fireplace, which was banked with palms, with standards on either side topped with white peonies and roses of smilax forming an aisle for the bridal party.

The bride wore a gown of pearl grey beaded Georgette over flesh colored satin, with a panel in front caught with wreaths of pink satin rosebuds; her veil of silver tulle was fastened to a band of silver with orange blossoms and she carried sweetheart roses and white sweet peas. The matron of honor, Mrs. J. Franklin Sweeney, sister of the bride, was gowned in pink organdie, trimmed with turquoise blue satin ribbon, and carried Ophelia roses. John Callahan attended the groom. Miss Olive Garber played the wedding march Lohengrin, and Miss Virginia Wilson sang before the ceremony.

The ceremony was followed by a reception after which a supper of twenty covers was served at the Hotel Lenox. The bride’s table was laid for eight and decorated with pink roses and sweet peas. Among the out-of-town guests were Miss Madlyn Wilson, Miss Eva Wilson and Miss Virginia Wilson of Morenci, Mich.; Miss Mary Bryant, Miss Florence Bryant and Gerald Bryant of Seneca, Mich.; Fenwick Wilson of Providence, R.I., and Rockwell Gust of Detroit, Mich.

Mr. and Mrs. Wilson will take a western trip and will be at home after August 1 at Morenci, Mich.
